Statement on why I retired 40min into this race:

First of all, yesterday, in the practice race, I had quite good pace and really felt comfortable in this car+track+weather combination. I was really looking forward to today´s race and thought I could manage to drive into the top 10.

But then, as I wanted to set up my wheel with my wheel base and its wheelstand today in the noon, it showed no reaction. I found out that it´s most likely an electronical failure and I will either have to send the wheel back to Thrustmaster and let them repair it or will have to buy a new base which will then most likely would be followed with an upgrade of all: The wheel, wheelbase and pedals.
In the afternoon I then practiced with the keyboard and the controller as I wanted to take part in this race so badly and I also was NOT TOO bad, but as I joined the lobby and raced there it was far harder due to that controller nerf on online servers.
I wasn´t even capable of setting a lap time in quali because I invalidated all of my laps and then I started dead last and also was way off-pace during the race which let me draw the conclusion to retire the car...:cry:

@Anduaa I was sooo proud of that battle. Until the game decides "you can take that kerb 90 times in 3 races, but the 91st time I'mma make you spin" :D and btw how can that "doink" into the barrier be front damage but not rear :D

which happened to me three times today. Absolute **** show.. 3 completely unexplainable spins. No braking, no oversteering, no throttle. Just spinning. Looked at the replay 873 times - no reason at all. Everything's perfect..... :mad:

btw I hereby officially declare @Jeppi the unluckiest driver ever... :(

Hi @morphee7 I'm sorry that I passed the qualification, but when today's race at Silverstone started, I left the game, my pregnant wife started complaining about fights during the qualification and I canceled my race to take her to the hospital, now I'm sitting nervous and waiting for the birth of my son!
Good luck :D :D It's nervousness now, but it will be happiness within a few hours :D!

I might have to withdraw from this race, TL-DT version.

I hurt my calf at some point yesterday afternoon, I tried to use heat to ease it, tried running a few laps on Race Room Experience this morning and still suffering from pain in it. Hopefully, it's just very bad cramp or something that can clear itself by Tuesday. However, it's looking likely I'm missing this round.
